Agricultural infrastructure has inherent vulnerabilities to wildfire. However, buildings and infrastructures can be hardened and maintained to reduce their vulnerability to fire and fire-related damage to agricultural resources. Additionally, having a plan in place to keep your livestock safe and healthy is essential to maintaining animal health and resume operations as quickly as possible post-wildfire. Join the Fire Network to learn about wildfire preparedness strategies for farms and ranches!
